"Knowing Marty's Local only sources from local and regional and sustainably sourced producers allows us to meet our increasing target without poring through spreadsheets and supply chains. The transparency they provide and relationships they cultivate make them the default vendor when we're looking for local products."

Andy Cox

Director of Dining Services, Smith College

Northampton, MA

 

"I’ve been sourcing from regional farms for over 40 years. It’s time-consuming, complicated, and challenging to work into an already busy schedule. Marty’s Local has established for me, and other local chefs, a far more diverse palate than we could otherwise source for ourselves. It's exciting to have this resource - their impact on farm-to-table sourcing is of enormous importance to me and to our community!" 

Chef Amy Loveless

''Eating is an agricultural act''

 

OUR MISSION

The purpose of Marty’s Local is to help build our regional food system by linking the exceptional farmers and food producers of our area with local institutions.  We’re fortunate to have an abundance of high-quality growers and food producers nearby, and yet the overwhelming majority of our food still travels thousands of miles to get to us. 

The farmers and food producers in New England and New York can grow, raise, and make almost anything.  This enormous variety of delicious and healthy foods is right here, all within a day’s drive and often much closer.  By supporting these businesses, we’re growing our local economies, eating marvelously flavorful and nourishing foods, promoting sustainable agriculture, protecting farmland, and celebrating the rich heritage of our region.

What is a regional food system, and why does it matter?  From our perspective, a regional food system is the network of people and businesses and land and seeds and animals that take food from the conceptual stage to our mouths.  It’s a “regional” system if it sensibly makes use of the resources that are nearby and accessible.  The food system we choose for ourselves matters because it directly and significantly impacts our economy, our health, and our environment.  As Wendell Berry wrote, “eating is an agricultural act.”

We believe in the quality and the unique tastes of the foods we can grow and produce right here in our region.  We want to facilitate a flourishing of flavors and health and character in our foods.  We want to foster the curious bakers and the flexible chefs.  And we believe in transparency: knowing who grew and raised your food, how they did it, how it was prepared, and what it costs.

We care about what seeds were used, the people planning and planting, weeding and harvesting and packing, the land on which it was grown and raised, the truckers moving it from the farm to the kitchen, the chefs creating, and the experience you have eating it.  We live here, too, and we believe good things are all around us. 

Marty’s Local is honored to have the opportunity to support the thousands of terrific farmers and food producers doing hard work all around us.  They’re our neighbors, and we believe in them.
